Is the cub with the swollen head still with the pride

Adam Bannister

Yes, and what is great is that the swelling appears to be reducing

If left up side down would the tortoise be able to flip over?

I am not sure Leslie…I wander this myself?

More than likely it would not be able to. Its not impossible but normally they have a very hard time.

Fantastic pictures, Adam! – especially the 7 cubs and lionness drinking together. Hope to see them when we return to Founders in mid-February – not long now, and can’t wait!

Are all the cubs female? If so the Sparta pride will finally be very big.

As far as I know there are six male cubs and one female. Maybe Adam could confirm?

Love the cubs trying to get the tortoise and the lions drinking together! First, they are too chicken to attack the Guinea Fowl and now they can’t get the tortoise! We miss Londolozi already!
